Providing nursing students with a clear overview of the field and busy practitioners with the information they need to deliver care, the Oxford Handbook of Orthopaedic and Trauma Nursing is an easily accessible, practical, and comprehensive guide to all aspects of practice. Orthopaedics and trauma is a major sector of acute hospital and community care, and one in which nurses and AHPs play a pivotal role, covering the continuum from birth to death and managing everything from emergency care to rehabilitation and discharge. The Oxford Handbook of Orthopaedics and Trauma Nursing is the ideal companion for these practitioners, presenting the spectrum of care and treatment across trauma and orthopaedics and providing an evidence-based synopsis of contemporary care and treatment as well as an applied assessment framework for those wishing to advance their practice. Clearly laid-out, well-illustrated and written in readable, note-based style, the Oxford Handbook of Orthopaedic and Trauma Nursing brings together the authors' many years of collective experience in one easy-to-use format the student and practitioner won't want to be without.

This Edition differs substantially from the first. Ten new chapters have been added. The main additions are a new section on orthopedic trauma, and the inclusion of pediatric orthopedics throughout the text. The book is split into two parts. Part I contains the general scene-setting chapters, this section has been expanded to 10 chapters with the inclusion of nutrition and basic principles of trauma/surgical care. Part II begins with a reappraisal of the extent of orthopedic morbidity, and then subdivides to take a pathology-orientated look at the common orthopedic problems. Conditions are explained and diagnostic and treatment methods set out, but the emphasis will be on nursing management.

Organizations are being urged to experiment with new structures and processes. A 'process perspective' on organizing is emerging as a major challenge to 'functional' principles of organizing established during the last century. Business process reengineering is one exemplar of process thinking that has received great attention amongst organizational theorists and practitioners. This in-depth account of business process reengineering within a major NHS hospital is an important contribution to the very limited stock of empirical knowledge about new organizational forms, especially in the public sector. The book combines empirical data gathered through an intensive, comparative case study method with strategic choice and neo-institutional theories to analyse the changing context of public organizations, importation of models of organizing from private to public organizations, and dynamics of public sector transformation. The outcomes of the change programme add to our more general organizational knowledge about (a) the impact of corporate change programmes, particularly in professionalized and public sector settings, (b) impediments and enablers of lateral organizing structures and processes, and (c) contradictions within the New Public Management between functional and process principles for organizing.
